Emily informs me that Curious Brain is organizing another screening of local independent music videos. The deadline for submissions is May 15, and the screenings will take place in mid-June. From the Showcase06 Call for Submission:

"Flip on the tele, see a music video. Doesn't matter the channel, whether it's selling you fashion, technology, or, hey, music. Music video's always been attached to product, after all, back in 1900, when music video -- then called illustrated song -- was invented, it was set up to sell sheet music. More than any other art form, music video is tied to commerce. But like any other medium, its creative upside was immediately recognized by artists everywhere.

"Curiousbrain proudly presents MU-VI, a showcase of music video's focusing on the art of combination of audio and visual. Co-sponsored by Boston's preeminent independent cinema, the Coolidge Corner theater, the two day event premieres on Friday night, June 14, at 11 p.m. at the Coolidge's state-of-the-art screening room and continues with two shows at 1 and 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 15. The showcase is capped off by a live concert for selected musicians from the show Saturday night! Tickets are 8 dollars, and will be on sale at the Coolidge soon!"

If you're in a local band, submit. This should be fun.
